2 years...

No, it's not our 2 year LIDiversary. Today marks 2 years since we started our, what we thought at the time was going to be relatively short, adoption journey.

February 1 2006 we walked into our (first) social worker's office, and talked about our hopes and dreams of adopting our child from China and how long the process would take.

I know, you're probably all rolling your eyes at that last sentence...

Oh well, life happens. You either roll with the punches or you just get beaten. I refuse to do the latter.

So, we continue to wait. It's not easy. I've had my ups and downs lately, sadly more downs than ups, but I'm trying to pull myself up...

Anyways, last night we went into our (second) social worker's office. Since the adoption is taking so long, our first social worker has now moved on to another job so we had to find someone else to take over our case. Anyways, we had to get the update letter done, and the social worker finally had it ready for us to pick up last night. We'll have to update again in 2010. Can I get a 'woo hoo'? :)

That two year mark is so sobering. In some aspects it's like, where did the time go and in other aspects it's why is this taking so dang long?? Sigh...........

Down the line, you'll look at your little girl and think, "It was totally worth it." I'm glad you're rolling with the punches and trying to keep your hopes up. *hugs*

Our 2 year anniversary passed a few days ago. Interesting to think of what we thought our lives would be now and where they really are. To have known then what we know now.......

We are in the same boat. Our 1 year lid is in 4 days and we started our paperchase 9 months before that.

I hope all is well with you guys.

Life's short. Drink lots.
It's not like you're going to be sober when baby arrives.

Besides, I can heckle you until 2011. I have that much in me.
